The clinic [Olympia] will see you after hours and on the weekends. That is a huge plus. It is very outdated and may not have the newest technology. There is a new embryologist that seems VERY helpful...team is very busy so sometimes you do not feel like a super priority but overall if you are patient, they give you the same respect when it's your turn...Long waiting times, at least an hour after your apt which was hard for us as we lived 3hrs away. Misplaced paperwork, which was found.

Describe your experience with Olympia Women's Health.
The clinic will see you after hours and on the weekends. That is a huge plus. It is very outdated and may not have the newest technology. There is a new embryologist that seems VERY helpful. Good to have fresh eyes.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
I was definitely treated more like a human. He was compassionate in his own way, you could tell he really did care about wanting to get to the outcome of "pregnancy". His team is very busy so sometimes you do not feel like a super priority but overall if you are patient, they give you the same respect when it's your turn. I do feel like he could or should communicate better on what may or may not actually be wrong with you or what we should try differently. He is caring and compassionate and will answer any questions you have.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Silvia was great! She was always very helpful and compassionate. The rest of the team didn't seem to know what was going on and not always helpful.
What specific things went wrong at this clinic?
  • Lost paperwork
How was your experience with James Moruzzi?
He is kind of an odd ball, but he is very smart and seems to know what he is doing and is comfortable with reaching out to other providers as needed. He will give you all the time you need and never rushes you.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of James Moruzzi?
Be patient. Yes, you will have to wait for your turn and it may be over an hour wait but when it comes your time, you are not in any hurry. Ask anything and everything you want. Trust that he knows what he is doing and has your back. Be proactive in your own care. He likes that and it feels good to know he is ok with that as well.
Describe the protocols James Moruzzi used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I was first put on a mini lupron does protocal due to having 3 previous pregnancy and births without complications and had a tubal ligation. I was stimming well and it looked like the first round that about 9 follicles looked like would be great eggs retrieved and some little ones that could possibly turn out good as well. As it turns out we only got 2 eggs. I was using Gonal F, Menopur, Ganirellex and 10,000un hcg. Which ended with no transwer of eggs. Only 1 grew to day 5 and then stopped. He only will transfer blasts and no freezing eggs. I guess if you have extra they just don't use them? I never got told the answer or asked. Second round we used more Gonal f, same dose menopur and used lupron, also 10,000un hcg and ovidrel, along with a double bevual for retrieval. (Which btw, you are awake for retrieval, but he drugs you up pretty good but let me tell you.. NOT GOOD ENOUGH) I would scream an cry each time I had them done. I'm terrified to do another one but will if it means I will bring a baby into this world. Anyways, that retrieval we got 6 eggs, and the follicles looked like we may have been looking at at least 10 with small ones possible. All 6 fertilized and we made it with 2, 5 day blasts transfered. We never really got a definite answer of if we had a third or not, but the embryologist had said the other couple had petered out. Unsure of what that means considering it's not a "they stopped growing". Anyways, 9 days after transfer we got a negative hcg blood test. Dr called later that evening to tell us he was very sad and knows I am fertile but we could make an apt for a conference for figuring something out as he did not know what went wrong at this time and was just too sad to think.
Describe the costs associated with your care under James Moruzzi.
He is probably THE MOST AFFORDABLE FOUND! It is a $5,000 deposit that covers ultrasounds, retrieval and transfer and care for embryos. You have to pay for your meds, he will send to a local place which is more expensive or out of the country to save cost. We had insurance coverage so we did the local meds. You get $500 off your next deposit if you go another round. Which made our second round for trying $4,500. You do get some of your money back if it is not used. I believe our first round we got back $1,000 because we did not make it to transfer.
